Subject: Build from CPAN fails (Strawberry Perl 5.10.0)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 900b
The build of Win32::GUI v1.06 fails at the link stage when building from the CPAN shell. This is due to the default CPAN::Config having the follwing setting: makepl_arg => q[LIBS=-LC:\\strawberry\\c\\lib INC=-IC:\\strawberry\\c\\include], which overrides the LIBS set in the Makefile.PL, preventing the module linking with comctl32.lib Work arounds: (1) perform 'look Win32::GUI' from the CPAN shell, and at the new command-prompt do the 'perl Makefile.PL; dmake; dmake test; dmake install' chant. (2) unset the makepl_arg option. (do this temporarily by 'o conf makepl_arg ""' make permanent by 'o conf commit') (3) add -lcomctl32 to $config{perllibs} by editing I'll be posting a link to this ticket at and hoping that the distribution owners can suggest a more permanent solution.
not an isuue on the latest strawberry perl
